What a wonderful idea.

I wonder how well this will work? It seems time that they would be more sensitive to the glass tapping and general movements that people bring. Hopefully just having people talking to them will allow them to be be used to people again.

Stories like this, especially in a time like this are important. It gives us a momentary respite from "more pressing things." Fluff is not a bad thing.

I wonder how eel specialty restaurants are doing.

I have to say that in light of the pandemic this story and this issue is pretty dang stupid.

Love eels - grew accustomed to the giant moray eels when diving in California, but I'd never heard of this species - fascinating. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterocongrinae
